United Talent Agency (UTA) announced today that it has signed the world’s largest Spanish-speaking comedian, musician and radio personality, Franco Escamilla, in all areas worldwide. The agency will continue to elevate Escamilla’s career in touring, film, TV, branding and more. Better known as “The Master of Sarcasm,” Escamilla is the founder of La Diablo Squad, a group of comedians that he performs with live and on his weekly “La Mesa Reñoña” YouTube show. On the music side, he has played at festivals such as Trovafest and Pa’l Norte, and released a solo album titled, “Fe” in 2017.
Escamilla was the first stand-up comedian to perform at the National Auditorium in Mexico, selling out two 10,000-cap shows in 2016. He has since gone on to tour worldwide selling an average of over 5,000 tickets per show and is the first Spanish-language comedian to do a tour in Asia and Europe. Recently, he released an hour-long Netflix special, Por La Anécdota, which he taped for 15,000 people at the Arena Mexico in Mexico City. His “Por La Anécdota” tour traveled him across major cities globally including sold-out nights in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Barcelona, Tokyo, Latin America and beyond. Escamilla also hosts his own show on Estrella TV and has taped numerous stand-up episodes for Comedy Central. His upcoming tour, “RPM” will play in Hong Kong, Sydney, Melbourne, Israel, Dubai and more.
Escamilla will continue to be represented by Bryan Andrade of ESCAN Management.
